This information arrived too late to be included in the October issue of The Syncopated Times:
A “JAZZY OKTOBERFEST” is planned by the Juvae Jazz Society of Decatur, IL, for Saturday, October 8th at the Decatur Club from 2 to 5 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by the “Gaslight Squares Jazz Band” from St. Louis, a relatively new, young, dynamic group playing styles of Ragtime and a variety of Jazz and Blues.

Making up the group are Jacob Alspach (tenor banjo, guitar & vocals), Jon Weiss (tuba), Matt Sellers (piano), Rudy Torrini (clarinet) and Nick Penne (washboard). Lots of talent – lots of music.
